COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaçao orange peels, the spices traditionnally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours, accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.

malrubius (2135) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle from Meuhelmans. Pale beige orange with head and lace. Light aroma of coriander and pink lemonade and wheaty tang. Mild (for style) pink lemonade sweetness with wheaty tangy fruitiness and wheaty umami (?) with very light coriander finish. Very refreshing. Medium light, not as light as some really good ones. Very subtle version of the style. Excellent...and gone.

Dans son style respectif, cette blanche est difficile à battre. Bière pas si blanche que ça et affichant une tête affirmée de bulles moyennes. On voit que la bière possède une certaine densité lorsque je la fais tournoyer dans mon verre tulipe. La mousse est peu persistante, mais le liquide lui-même s’agrippe aux parois de mon verre et en descend langoureusement en laissant sur le verre une pellicule translucide. En bouche, beaucoup de blés sucrés. Les arômes que je perçois sont très orientées vers le blé, le pain frais, l’orange. En bouche, la bière possède, tel qu’anticipé, beaucoup de corps et un beau sucre apporte à ce liquide léger et estival une jolie rondeur qui lui va à merveille. Ce n’est pas le genre de blanche que je serais en mesure de boire l’une à la suite de l’autre, mais sa charpente est parfaite pour une seule consommation. Beaucoup d’orange, peu ou pas de houblon, alcool bien dissimulé, le tout bien emballé dans un liquide rond et souple, finale longue et levurée à la Weisse - au risque de me répéter: blanche très réussie dans son style!

ippopotamo36 (782) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 5, 2015
0,33 bottle shared by mortlach during a great private tasting at my place in Rome-Italy. Thank you. Pours a cloudy golden color, white foam. Nose: very peculiar for a Blanche and really interesting. Subtle caramel notes, spices, lemon zest, flowers (violet). Mouth: a bit too tin but ok. Kind of a rye feel in a well-made Belgian wit. Fresh at the source from the keg should be really great.

Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av vete, honung, koriander, grön banan med blommiga toner. Lätt kropp, sötma och syrlighet, välbalanserad med fin beska.

Rototo64 (57) - Mouguerre, FRANCE - APR 25, 2015
Au service, la couleur est trés claire, la mousse blanche anarchique. Le nez typique du style ,est épicé,la coriandre domine.En bouche c’est doux, trés rafraichissant,léger, tellement facile à boire, une légère amertume désaltérante, un petit gout de pain frais, c’est fantomatique tellement c’est pale et léger,un petit nuage, une brume.Sans la levure du fond de bouteille, on est dans une clareté hallucinante, c’est fin et équilibré.Avec la levure de fin de bouteille, tout se trouble, l’amertume de fin de bouche est plus marquée, normal, quoi.Encore une trés bonne production de Dieu du Ciel !

Stoned99 (545) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle from Halles St-Jean shared with wife. Aroma: orange zest, coriander, wheat, spices. App: cloudy pale, small white head. Taste and palate: light body, soft carbonation, light acidity finish coming from the wheat. Overall: I’m not a great fan of witbier but this one is well done. Enough wheat, good mouthfeel, good acidity.

high_on_hops (795) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. It has a nice aroma of coriander, orange zest, and wheat. The flavor is similar, with coriander and other spices followed by a wheaty, dry finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
